Obituary: Marguerite K. Eberhard Selig

May 25, 1923-July 3, 2015

Marguerite was born in Los Angeles and passed away in Reno, Nevada.

Marguerite married her high school sweetheart, Robert Eberhard, in New York. Shortly after their marriage Robert Eberhard joined the navy and served his country on the USS Pampanito. The USS Pampanito is now a museum at pier 45 Fisherman¹s Wharf in San Francisco, CA.

Marguerite and her husband lived in Granada Hills, CA where they had a very successful Electrical business. After their 4 daughters were born they decided that their hearts were in the mountains and they moved to Tahoe and bought Tahoe West Lake Cabins in June of 1965, now known as the Fire Sign Café. Later, Marguerite married Lozell Selig and together they started ŒCall Lo¹s Hoe¹. Marguerite enjoyed playing golf with her lady friends at the Tahoe City golf course.

Later they bought a sail boat and spent many enjoyable weekends sailing around the lake and spending their nights at Emerald Bay. Years later their boat capsized in a storm off the west shore. They salvaged their boat only to have it lost again in a warehouse which burned down just as the final touches were made on their boat. They decided that their sailing days were over. They spent their winters in Lake of the Pines where they built their new house on the golf course and enjoyed entertaining their friends and playing golf, but spent their summers in Tahoe.

Marguerite is survived by her four daughters: Sharon Smith, Kailua, HI, Jeri Mullins, Olympic Valley, CA, Linda Sullivan, Golden, CO, and Judy Halstead, Yerington, NV. Five grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Marguerite left a garden of Memories and will be sorely missed by all the lives that she touched. There was a service for Marguerite August 22, 2015 aboard the USS Pampanito.
